HYDERABAD PHOTOS-4
Photos by Renato Redentor Constantino, unless otherwise specified.
Read Constantino's India essay here.

Golconda kids: Indian siblings take a walk through Hyderabad's history and make it to the top of the Golconda fort.

Shadow as shelter: Two women take refuge from the sun in a section of the Golconda citadel that what likely once a temple.

Smiling Hyderabadi boy: A family strolls down one of the stone steps of the ancient fortress complex.

Athena and the boys: The author's good friend Athena smiling at a group of Indian boys most of whom seemed to freeze when the camera was taken out. They had a good laugh afterwards. The writer was with Athena and other Greenpeace colleagues in India to campaign against the Asian Development Bank's hypocritical energy policy.

Soda mom with empty soda bottle: The saris worn by most Indian women sometimes appeared more radiant than the sun. The Indian woman in the picture is having a good laugh at the author's attempt to take her photo even as sweat was streaming down his face.
